The feeling you get while wondering who won awards at the 42nd Annual PSA Show, Enduring Brilliance, that you have a painting exhibited in.......... anxious....

The feeling you get when the caller ID on your phone says "Pastel Society of America"....... utterly blown away, butterflies in your stomach......absolutely stunned...... excited.......

Needless to say I am so very thrilled, and honored to accept the Pastel Society of the West Coast Award for my painting "Why?". For me this is the fourth time I've exhibited in this show, but it is the first time I've won an award. It is so very difficult to get juried into the show, that is in and of itself a "win", so to also win an award is such an honor. I am utterly blown away, totally excited, and absolutely honored to have my painting surrounded by such incredible pastel paintings.

Yup, I won an award at the Annual PSA Show!!

How completely and totally exciting, Chris! Watching your painting come to life was so enthralling for me as I am so awed by anyone who can paint portraits well. Obviously, others in the know were awed by it as well! Congrats! Well deserved!

Nice to see it again, Chris! I've seen it several times and it always grabs me. She has so much character and I feel like I could touch her super soft face - her skin would be so delicate and soft. That look in her eyes is so amazing.
